Artist
Helen Armstrong


Early Years

Helen Armstrong was born and raised in Sydney, Australia where she still visits her family and friends as often as possible. From her earliest memories, drawing and painting has been a dominant part of her life.

Post Education Influences

After completing her education, she spent a year traveling in Europe and many other countries of the world, during which time she studied the myriad works of the French Impressionists and Post-Impressionists in all the major museums.

Their techniques, and their use of colour and light, left Helen with a lasting desire to express her love of beauty, and to bring a spiritual harmony and balance in life into her own paintings.

Marriage, Family, and Art

She married a Texan and at first lived in Austin before settling in El Paso where they lived for 36 years whilst raising four children.

Helen continued her studies in art participating in many workshops in the Southwest and continuously attending art classes at the University of Texas, El Paso, as well as completing a Degree in Interior Design.

Prviate Art Study

Also during that time, it was her good fortune to meet and study privately with Aleksander and Lyuba Titovets, the internationally acclaimed Russian artists who immigrated to El Paso 22 years ago.

Trained in the traditions of the Russian Classical School of Painting, using varying brush strokes in impasto style as in classical Impressionism, Helen’s paintings reflect the different influences of her training and the many experiences of her life and background.

Current Exporations

Now living once again in Austin within a different environment, she is exploring new ideas and using varying techniques, but hoping to display that same passion for colour and a spiritual harmony in her latest paintings.
